going to have to go to detroit, cleveland, or columbus. those are the closest places, but what is also extremely possible is that some illegal operation will set up shop to try to satisfy the needs there. >> one of the things that makes a big practical difference to women who have to travel a long distance in order to get an abortion is the length of time they have to spend away once they have made the travel. obviously if you can go somewhere close to home, the time you have to spend isn't as much of a burden as if you have to travel to some far away city. does ohio have a mandatory waiting period for women seeking abortions? >> ohio has a 24 hour waiting period. for the women in the toledo region who have to travel several hours away, this, of course, not only gives them transportation expense with the price of gas. if they have to stay overnight, they're going to have to pay for lodging or they're going to drive home for several hours and then drive again back the next day or whenever their next appointment is. unfortunately, many of the women in ohio who do seek an abortion are alr
find ourselves feeling weaker on the ground in places like detroit and baltimore. >> there's a statistic from the urban institute that i found pretty stunning. over the past 30 years, the average white family has gone from having five times as much wealth as the average black family, to 6 1/2 times. which is to say the wealth disparity between black households and white households is accelerating. what do you -- how do you make sense of that? how do you make sense of that in the context of the racial progress that we've made in so many areas and the fact that we have the first black president? >> well, look, certainly, we have come a long way, and there's a long way to go. and the reality is that the banking industry in many instances, in too many instances, targeted the black community for really strip mining wealth in our communities, through the shenanigans that happened through the mortgage business, during the bubble. and obama started right at the beginning of that. and i think if there's frustration in the community, it's that we haven't seen really folks go to jail
are upset because i correctly said that republicans trashed the city of detroit. >> this will shock you and shock some of your viewers. there are many, many republicans in congress right now, perhaps the majority, who not only are opposed to raising the minimum wage, they want to abolish the minimum wage. >> these guys are so used to going to their man cave at fox. >> why are you attributing that to women in the work force? >> excuse me. let me just finish what i'm saying, if i may, oh, dominant one. >> where they are stroked and petted and egos are flattered. >> heavenly father, thank you for senator ted cruz of texas. there is no moral or religious case for taking away health care from 30 million americans. make no mistake, a photo op with president obama does not make chris christie bipartisan. accepting disaster relief, which was the right thing to do, does not make chris christie bipartisan. i have met the governor, and said, why don't you come on "the ed show" sometime? he doesn't need to come on my program, and quite honestly, i don't need to interview him. i have all the informa
, strikes have been staged in new york, chicago, kansas, and detroit, with workers demanding that minimum wage be raised to $15 an hour. at the federal level, of course, congress hasn't raised the minimum wage since 2009 when they pushed it up to $7.25 an hour. now f you calculate the minimum wage for congress itself, the salaries they pay themselves, it's $70 an hour. and that still is nothing to many members of congress. in fact, the hill just released a list of the 50 wealthiest members. on top is representative darrell issa, who clocks in at a diamond encrusted $355 million. >> that's a triple blinger. >> let's spin on the money game. the issa money and the fact these folks pay themselves $70 an hour while they won't up go from $7.25, despite the president's call for a higher minimum wage, tells you a lot about their values and where their priorities are. you don't need $355 million unless, you know -- i'm reminded of something lil' wayne said, which is too much money, it ain't enough money. that's clearly the way some of the members feel when it comes to paying themselves. when you l
irresponsib irresponsibly, they were made by someone who aren't the 19,000 pensioners in detroit struggling to get by. lee saunders from the asmy union. dean baker from center for economic policy research. thank you gentlemen, both. that is "all in" for this evening. the "rachel maddow show" starts now. >> good evening, chris. thank you, my friend. thanks to you at home for staying with us the next hour. the city of winston-salem has not quite a quarter million people in it. it is a substantial city. big companies are based there. several colleges are based there. winston-salem is the fifth largest city in the state of north carolina. the mayor of winston-salem is this man, alan joines, a democrat, up for re-election of mayor this year. the challenger on the republican side is this man, james lee knox. he works for a local towing company. and despite being the only republican challenging the incumbent mayor of winston-salem for the mayor's job, james lee knox has just lost the support of his local republican party. the forsythe county republican party has announced that they no l

, part of that was his convention '84 -- >> in detroit -- >> the '84 one we were talking about, this is the one that made jean kirkpatrick a star. and it was the label of -- so a two-pronged approach, right, want to paint the other party as out of the mainstream, which is what that convention's job was. >> that year, wasn't hard to do with the democrats. >> they went into san francisco and then created this moniker that stuck with the party since. >> yes, yes. no, everybody was really surprised at kirkpatrick's speech. of course, it was wildly received there. and don't forget, too, the republicans were mindful of their gender gap problems. so they were putting a lot of women forward. catherine otega opened the convention. and maureen reagan spoke. >> when you look at what christie is trying to do. everybody is going to claim in 2016 they're using the kaleidoscope of reagan. if you're christie, how do you fix your problems with conservatives use a reagan model? >> he's got a good record as governor. he's done a lot in terms of union reform and cutting spending and -- >> quote/un
you think martin luther king would be saying about what has unfolded in detroit? >> well, i think obviously he would be very concerned. he would be outraged today that in america, black youth unemployment is close to 40% and real unemployment in this country is 14%. he talked about and led and moved toward that march on washington, that poor people's march at the time that he died, what he was talking about is an economy of full employment. massive investment in job creation and not just for african-americans. he was bringing together hispanics, poor whites and he was saying we have got to stand together and too often, ed, we forget about that aspect about martin luther king jr. and we simply focus on his enormously effective work in desegregating america. >> that day, what was the mood like? if you have to capture the emotion and memory about what that day was like, what would you say? >> enormous optimism, enormous excitement about the fact that so many people of all colors, of all ages came together in washington, d.c. that was unprecedented up until that point. the king speech
